Von Arctic Rodeo:
all of us are shocked and saddened by the catastrophe going on in the Philippines, and all of us are deeply affected by the pictures broadcasted to us every day. More bad news are shocking us further and further, and there is no end in sight considering the consequences caused by the typhoon that has taken away so many people’s lives, their homes and properties and that has torn apart so many families. The people there need us, they need our help.
Intending to raise as much money as possible for donating it to the typhoon victims in the Philippines, we decided to start charity auctions at ebay where we are selling vinyl test pressings of several records we have released on Arctic Rodeo. We will donate all profit we will make with these auctions.
Arctic Rodeo normally does not sell test pressings. After having done this once or twice in the past – at normal prices after people had asked us for a copy for their personal record collection – and realizing that it does not feel right to make money by selling a white labeled record which is actually not made for being sold, we stopped doing this and have never done it again. We have been asked for test pressings very often during the past years, and people offered us a lot of money which we did not accept. You may now please spend a lot of money for purchasing those test pressings for a good cause. We are even kindly asking you to do so and help the people in the Philippines.
We are offering test pressings of records from artists such as Ox, Walter Schreifels (Youth Of Today, Gorilla Biscuits, Quicksand, Rival Schools, Walking Concert), Southerly, Jonathan Inc., I Is Another (feat. members of Rival Schools, Burn, Die 116, Far, New End Original, Onelinedrawing, Gratitude), Far, Adam Rubenstein (Split Lip, Chamberlain), I Hate Our Freedom (feat. members of Garrison, Texas Is The Reason, Thursday), Juta, Walking Concert (feat. members of Quicksand, Rival Schools, Bold), Burning Airlines (feat. members of Office Of Future Plans, Jawbox, Channels), Ian Love (Rival Schools, Burn, Die 116, I Is Another), Horace Pinker, Vs.Rome, Atlantic/Pacific (feat. members of Texas Is The Reason, House & Parish, Solea), Retisonic (feat. members of Bluetip, Swiz, Red Hare, Sweetbelly Freakdown, Garden Variety, J Majesty, Vs.Antelope), Vs.Antelope (feat. members of Texas Is The Reason, J Majesty, Retisonic), Matt Pryor (The Get Up Kids, The New Amsterdams), Jonah Matranga (Far, New End Original, Onelinedrawing, Gratitude, I Is Another), Ari Hest, Solea (feat. members of Texas Is The Reason, Samiam), Kevin Devine, Max & Laura Braun, Chamberlain, God Fires Man (feat. members of Bad Trip, Mind Over Matter, Bold, Into Another, Garrison, Errortype:11), Hoch/Tief, Dear Lions (feat.
